I hope it isn't the old 170 lump, and preferably earlier than 4Q.

I'm really hoping those wheels aren't on it.

 

And are they really going to use a 170hp engine (is one available anywhere in the MQB range?) or is that just poor guesswork?

4th Quarter 2014!! Why the long delay? Especially with the VRs being launched within months of the 'regular' models?

 

Though I guess there's not much point releasing another variation if you can't build the existing one's fast enough!

The Scout will be at the Geneva Motorshow in March, build from week 12. Don't know when it's on sale in the UK though.

 

180BHP 1.8TSI and 185BHP 2.0 TDI.

Ronnie, is that certain? So im guessing at that point SUK will make the 1.8TSi available in other Octavias...  possibly.

I highly doubt that the VRS TDI engine will be in it... I'd love to be wrong though. Time will tell.

The TDI yes, 1.8TSI I am pretty sure will be the petrol engine of choice. But don't expect anything of SUK :giggle:

Going by the current RRP of a bog standard SE 4x4 or the newly released Elegance, I can see it being a scary price and probably on oversized wheels for the terrain its supposedly designed for :giggle:

The 2.0 tdi 184 bhp engine will be an option in the scout ( i've been told by people who should know )

The Passat Alltrack only goes to 177, so I am doubtful Skoda will be allowed to sell a more powerful one.

But the current Passat 177 is now end of life so it probably wont be in the UK market place at the same time. Possibly!

Hey, I'm more than happy to be wrong on this one. That'd be an awesome combination.

Great!

And what about the brakes? Same diameter of VRS? It would be easy to lower it with a set of Eibach/H&R, a pair of ARB, Andrew's bok and have a definitely intriguing "family car".

Well, that's one thing that could point to the fact that we could doubt the VRS TDI engine. Wouldn't it be odd to have the VRS brakes for just one engine option out of the many for the Scout? So you could have 16" wheels on the 1.8TSI but not the 2.0TDI 184... And it would be just as odd to have the engine but the smaller brakes from the rest of the range.

312mm across all Scouts would be my guess. And it is purely just a guess. :)

It was seeing how popular the Scout is with people in French Ski resorts that first made me look at Skoda.

And wording for the above Autocar article this morning:

 

"

The new Skoda Octavia Scout will make its world debut at the Geneva motor show early next month.

Skoda says the new model is designed to be a "robust all-rounder" and features more aggressive SUV-inspired styling than the regular Octavia estate on which it is based. 

Larger front and rear bumpers with silver-coloured guards give the Octavia Scout a muscular look, while the front also gets a wider air intake and new fog light designs. Protective side mouldings are marked out in black along the sides, as are the door sills and extended wheel arches.

The Octavia Scout's ride height is raised by 33mm over the standard car, and sits on 17-inch alloy wheels. Skoda has fitted the Octavia Scout with a fifth-generation Haldex all-wheel drive system, which the Czech manufacturer says helps to improve the climbing power of the Octavia Scout over the old model.

Inside, a new three-spoke steering wheel developed specifically for the Scout controls most functions. A central infotainment display can also be seen alongside a part-leather interior.

Skoda says a range of two diesel and one petrol engine will accompany the Octavia Scout at launch. Those engines are likely to be chosen from the existing Octavia range, and help to make the new Scout up to 20 per cent more economical than its predecessor.

The Octavia Scout will go on sale in the UK this summer."

It will be 1.8TSI and 2.0TDI 185PS but don't don't know what the second TDI will be. 150BHP TDI maybe?

Nice, but it looks like the tyres are too big for the wheel openings to me. (in the pictures posted above)

 

Any bets on us not getting the petrol option in the UK?
